Hi Everyone,

 

We have a Business essentials license for office 365. Trying to implement the pending actions as per the secure report. However, I am unable to find the options under Office Admin Centre to fix the below issues.

 

1. Enable Data Loss Prevention Policies-Advanced Action

2. Enable Advanced Threat protection safe attachment policy-Advanced Action

3. Enable Advanced Threat protection safe links policy-Advanced Action

 

Do you need Azure AD Premium License to do the above changes?

 

Thanks for reading.

 

Regards

Roy

You should take Secure Score Security as security recommendations you should implement and also that you won't be able to apply some of these recommendations because of the Office 365 Plan you have. For instance, 2. and 3. appears for sure in Office 365 E5 Plans so that's the reason you cannot configure then in your Plan. Same happens with 1....so in regards to your question, you don't need Azure AD Premium, but you would need a an upper plan

Actions from Secure Score aren't absolutes, they are items to be reviewed and possibly implemented depending on the particular environment.  It's about getting a balance with improving security while retaining productivity for end-users. 

 

Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) is included in the E5 plan but it's available separately as an add-on for most other plans including Office 365 Business Essentials. Further details are availabile here by the way.

 

There are some upcoming features to look out for as well, some details in this post.  A couple of other resources well worth checking out, the Security and Compliance Update for Office 365 (really good recent presentation) and perhaps my own Find and Fix Risks in Office 365 article. 

 

Finally, no Azure AD Premium License doesn't come into it, that a different feature set as outlined in this page - Azure Active Directory editions.

Hi John,

 

You can find below details of your queries:

2. Enable Advanced Threat protection safe attachment policy-Advanced Action

3. Enable Advanced Threat protection safe links policy-Advanced Action

 

Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) is not available in O365 Business Essentials subscription. ATP is available in O365 E5 subscription. You can find more details to:  https://products.office.com/en-in/business/office-365-enterprise-e5-business-software

 

Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection is available as add-on subscription . You need to purchase a separate subscription for ATP. You can order ATP through the Microsoft Online Subscription Program. For mor details to: https://products.office.com/en-in/exchange/online-email-threat-protection

 

Do you need Azure AD Premium License to do the above changes?: Azure AD Premium license is not required for above your queries.
